Revell Space Station - Kit No H -1805 from 1959. Brief History of the Model. The Revell Space Station is one of the rarest and most sought after model kits ever produced and was only issued once in 1959 It was very expensive for the time and therefore did not sell well and had a brief production life. It has not been re-issued since Revell planned to re-issue the Space Station which would have included an introduction written by the original designer Ellwyn Angle. However this special re-issue could not happen because Revell could not find the 5 moulds needed to produce the kit.They discovered that the original moulds had been destroyed and no longer existed. Therefore the Revell Space station from 1959 will never be reissued. I have been collecting rare space model kits since 1984 The Revell Space Station offered here is from my personal collection. I have inventoried the kit and it is 100% complete - THERE IS NOTHING MISSING, THERE ARE NO MISSING PARTS.
All printed matter including the instructions, Space Station Operation Manual and decals are present. Everything offered including all of the parts is shown in the pictures.The kit and the box are mint , and look like they were manufactured yesterday, despite being 61 years old. Printed matter looks fresh- no yellowing Decals are excellent - no cracking or misprinting The only issue is that one of the legs on Part 59 - Camera Tripod has become detached - but part 59 is complete - see the top of the picture of the orange parts which shows part 59 and the detached leg and the last picture showing Step 19 of the instructions which identifies Part 59. You will not find a better example of this ultra rare model. The purchaser will not be disappointed.
